JOSHUA LONGORIA “PASSION FOR LIFE” MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
Deadline: July 10, 2020
Receive an additional $500 as a new applicant or a renewal graduating from a university.
The Joshua Longoria Passion for Life Memorial Scholarship is open to students striving to seek the truest desire to serve others with conviction and compassion. In establishing this scholarship, Joshua’s mother and SAHA employee, Laura Longoria, and her family, wish to recognize students that are dedicated to continuing their education, and achieve a career goal that Joshua was unable to complete due to his shortened life. When Joshua was diagnosed with melanoma cancer, it quickly spread to his bones. Daily tasks such as getting out of bed became too difficult, and he was unable to work. Despite his condition, his cancer never hardened his heart. Joshua was touched by incredible people in all career fields he met in his life. It gave him a passion for life with a focus on being the best son, brother, nephew, grandson, friend, boyfriend, cousin, patient and positive acquaintance to all who met him. Joshua lived in a way that made his entire family see the incredible young adult he was and the remarkable man he would have been.
